Abstract

The effects of five different types of trigram units, embedded in three positions (beginning, middle and end) of an eight-item list of consonants, were investigated. The five types of trigrams were: letter repetitions (GGG), meaningful-pronounceable (FIB), meaningful-unpronounceable (FBI), unmeaningful-pronounceable (BIF), and unmean ingful-unpronounceable (BGF). Voice differences were used to achieve isolation, and a free recall procedure was employed. The data indicated an inverse relationship between both overall list performance and isolated trigram performance and the other items in the list. © 1970, Psychonomic Journals, Inc..
